Tracy Smith

Working and exhibiting as an artist for over 35 years. Including several times at the Wollombi Sculpture in the Vineyards. Recently I have been battling multiple cancers. My art practice explores the psychological and physical of my existence at the moment. The tearing away of the flesh and an attempt to come to terms with the ephemerality of existence.
